Annual Report 2009: Engaging Communities

Annual Report 2009, 'Engaging Communities', illustrates the impact of volunteerism on development, especially at the community level.

Structured around advocacy, integration and mobilization, the cornerstones of our work, it examines how UNV and development partners, powered by volunteerism, achieve human development. Results are highlighted in gender and youth empowerment (chapter one), environment and climate change adaptation (chapter two), as well as health, peacekeeping and humanitarian response (chapter three).
